Subject: [BRE] Brethren -Mennonite - Amish names
Date: Fri, 25 Jul 2008 21:26:47 -0400
Almost all of these family names have Somerset County connections, and were
Amish or Mennonite prior to being Brethren.
May I ask how one can tell if the surname is Amish, Mennonite or Brethren?
I was able to go back another 4 generations on one of my main lines and have
come to NEWCOMER, which I have been led to believe is Swiss and Mennonite.
How can someone tell this by the surname.
